Bayern Star Would Not Give Cristiano Ronaldo Or Lionel Messi The Ballon D'Or
A Bayern Munich star has named one player he thinks deserves the Ballon d'Or – and it is not FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi or current holder Cristiano Ronaldo.
Many pundits and journalist consider the Portuguese and Argentine to be the best players in the world right now, but French winger Franck Ribery feels it should be going to someone else.
Ribery believes his Bayern teammate Robert Lewandowski deserves credit for his consistent performances season after season.
"Lewandowski is incredible. He definitely deserves the Ballon d'Or," he told Bild.
"I have played with great forwards here. Luca Toni was magnificent, later (Mario) Gomez and (Miroslav) Klose. But Robert is probably the most complete of all."
Ronaldo and Messi have dominated the Ballon d'Or ceremony award since 2009, with the Portuguese star winning it four times and the Argentine claiming it on five occasions.
Lewandowski has been in terrific form so far this season, scoring 33 goals in 36 appearances in all competitions for the Bavarians.
